M.I.A. - "Galang"
Do you know Mathangi "Maya" Arulpragasam? Well, she's in Time Magazine's 2009 list of the World's 100 Most Influential people. She's better known as M.I.A., the artist behind the Paper Planes track in the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack. Before her musical rise to stardom, she was working as a successful visual artist in London. In this music video for an early hit of hers, Galang, she showcases her own kinetic and political visual art in the background. She once said, "I wanted to see if I could write songs about something important and make it sound like nothing. And it kind of worked."
